Smaller hostel, dead centre of Edinburgh. Staff friendly and welcoming. 12 person room and window onto a side-street, so bed early and up and out. Ideal for me.

Good 6.0
For short stay
Overall, it's good. Just the ventilation in our room is not very good. And as we open the window, we saw mouse outside.
